Since becoming a mother just over six years ago, I can't tell you how many hours I've spent sitting or driving in this car. I can't tell you how many tears have been shed, how many snacks have been consumed, or how many times either of you has fallen asleep in this car. I can't tell you how many drive-thrus this car has been through or how many cups of coffee I've consumed sitting right here. In many ways, this car has seen it all.
So it's only fitting that this car is the place where I begin #aweekofmama. I'm joining mothers the world over to spend a week (or maybe two!) getting in the picture every day, to acknowledge and celebrate this crazy ride called motherhood. I take so many photos of my daughters, but so few of myself in my role as their mother. This project is designed to change that. (If you're so inclined, you can play along, too. Just use the hashtag #aweekofmama.)
